Francis (Frank) X. Kowalewski, born 2/23/1946 in Pleasanton, CA. On the bright sunny day of 3/18/2015 Frank died quietly of liver cancer; he was 69.

He is survived by his nephew, Victor of Virginia; his cousin, Dawyn of California, and Marta, his companion of 33 years.

Frank will best be remembered as a Sous Chef at El Gaucho, corner of 7th & Olive (closed for years).

Rest in peace Frank.



Dear Marta, my heart goes out to you. I hope we will keep in touch. --Kathryn Gordon

I worked with Frankie at two different restaurants when I lived at the Cambridge apartments. I remember what he taught me and still have great memories of he and our friend Richie working so close together. He is in my thoughts and will be missed and remembered fondly! --Anthony (Dave) Hines
